[Juba, South Sudan,TCT] - German ambassador to Juba, Jan Hendrik Van Thiel, called on all South Sudanese parties to the conflict to end suffering of the South Sudanese people through the regional peace revitalization process, supported by the international community.

Speaking during a press conference organized by the United Nations Children Agency (UNCIEF), in Juba, Hendrik said Berlin is engaging all parties to realize durable peace in South Sudan.

“I call upon the leaders holding positions of responsibility either in government or in oppositions to live up to their words and commitment of bringing peace to this country,” said Hendrik.

The German envoy said, it is time for the warring parties to put aside their political interests and take the opportunity offered to them by the region and international community to end the human suffering in the country.

He said, Germany as the third big humanitarian donor in the country and with commitment supporting the implementation mechanism of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCSS).

He further revealed that his government as a member state of Europeans Union (EU) and United Nations (UN) has supported peace monitoring body with 11.6 million Euros since 2016.

“Once peace is achieved, we will move away from humanitarian assistance to development. This is because we want South Sudan to be a self-reliant and proud country,” the envoy said.

South Sudan descended into violence in December 2013 after political disagreements between President and his former deputy. Regional and international bodies supported South Sudan to reach peace agreement with itself in 2015 to end the violence which was again violated in July 2016 when the rival factions resumed fighting in the capital. The conflict has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions others from their homes.
